Another School Year Begins

Summer is over (well the heat isn't). Another school year begins. I am not cheering, celebrating or relaxing...Lying.

Sommer was so excited for her first day of 7th grade! She looked quite lovely in her "back-to-school" outfit. When I went back to school (this was in Alaska), we actually had fall clothes that were appropriate for the weather (sweaters that we didn't actually "sweat" in). But although they sell jackets, sweaters and if you can believe it, PANTS...you just can't wear them in 90 degree heat. I guess you can, you just might get a bit overheated. (tangent?!)

Here are the boys getting ready for their first day. Calvin is the big 5th grader, Ethan is a 3rd grader and Tate a fresh little (and might I add totally cute) Kindergartener.
He was not thrilled about wearing the Bunny necklace that is recquired by all Kindergarteners the first few weeks to adorn...
Ahhh! Bless your hearts you home schooling mothers!

I'll bet your house was quiet today Heather! And tomorrow will be even quieter while Ashton is at preschool. What are you going to do with all of that free time? BTW, I love that little grin of Tate's- adorable!

Heather-are you singing the FREEDOM song or what? I was a mess today. Tate is a cute kindergartener.

Your family is so cute, love the pictures!

I think Tate and Fisher would be fast friends. Fisher would have hated that bunny too:).

I so wish that Sommer was here so that I could know her better...maybe a future San Diego trip would be a good time to have her come visit? She is BEAUTIFUL!!! Those boys are also quite handsome. Love the birthday cake...looks yummy.

Sommer looks a lot like you! Such a pretty young lady! I bet you are already having to chase away the girls from your boys, they are so handsome!
